Papille Pescara Luigi D’Orazio
Pescara is the biggest town in Abruzzo along the coast of Adriatic sea in the central of Italy, in this beautiful city among the sightseeing, the food and the wine play a big role in the CBD.
Last week we spend a beautiful night at this Osteria in the same line of Parisian bistro, the name is Osteria Papille hosted by the owner Luigi D'orazio.
Luigi is a very prepared person his wine list is focus on natural wine and old vintage of Barolo and Tuscan benchmark at very good price; the food menu is enriched with selection of typical product of the region of Abruzzo and selection of different beef breed.
We had a charcoal fillet from the Limousin cattle from the Marche regions in France which it is an high muscle breed.
The fillet was tender and tasty, from advice of Luigi the first wine of the night we had was Le Raisin et L'ange by Gilles Azzoni 100% Syrah in a rosè style. It is a Vin de Pays in the Ardeche which is a forgotten appellation in the Rhone Valley, bisecting the north and the south of Rhone. Was a bit unclear but with bright and vivid copper color, almost granitic on the plate a bit reductive with a very pleasant hint of volatile and why not some brett make that wine to follow in love. Sour cherry and tar with some humus balance palate and nose. Focus on freshness with a pleasant acidity and mineral content. Great warmness in the palate show the hot slope of the Ardeche.
Thanks to Papille a good place to spend a nice night.
